Lighting in the bedroom is a big deal for us - my husband and I have different sleep schedules, but we like to be able to work in the bedroom while the other one is asleep. The amount of light in a room is usually a manner of personal preference, but I like the Ikea Lans table lamp because it provides enough light for reading without giving off too much light.
This lamp has a small footprint, and we have an energy-efficient bulb installed. The switch is on the cord, which some people may not like. Because of its location on our nightstand, the switch is easy to reach and is not an issue for us.
The wood is a light color, and would fit in with many decors. The lamp shade is off-white, and has done well despite a couple of tumbles onto the bed or the floor.
In my opinion, some Ikea furniture looks cheap, but this lamp looks nice and seems to be well-built. We have had it for over a year now, and have not had any problems. This is a good table lamp if you are in the market for one!
